This sighting was filmed with a 8mm by one of the little league coach, with me in the foreground.

I was helping the coach pick up the equipment when she said "look at the flying saucers" then she got her 8mm camera out and started filming with me in the foreground. This film then was turned over to the Gov. , and about 10 days later two Air Force officers came to my school and found me and ask if I would talk to them about the sighting, they were from Project Blue Book. This interview was Approx. 1hr. I was 12 years old at the time and did not realize the importance of that interview.

Fast forward to 1969 when watching television program on ufo's and at the end of this program they said " they are 3 sighting that cannot be explained and the first one was them showing the 8mm film with me in the foreground pointing at the two ufo's.

How can I get this report from the Project Blue Book ?

I had a near death experience at the age of 14, and have had 5 other sighting in my 81 years of life. So this is number 1 of 6 .


Can any of the visitors to our website help this witness find a copy of the footage he describes in his report??
